Conservatory Styles

There are a wide range of conservatory styles available, designed to satisfy every preference and budget. Many types of conservatory draw their inspiration from a specific period in history and uniquely incorporate materials into their design.

Many homeowners incorporate a ‘dwarf wall‘ – a miniature wall usually less than one metre in height and built around the base – into their conservatory design. They can choose from a number of different frames including uPVC, aluminium and even wooden.  Additionally, they can include double-glazed common glass or a decorative glass option in the build.  

The styles listed beneath are the most highly sought after in the UK right now.

Edwardian Conservatory

This popular style which can be traced back to the 18th/19th century is similar to the Victorian style, but has more facets and less ornate designs making it appear more modern and sleek.  Its rectangular shape brings a contemporary feel to any home, allowing extra room for large furniture.  

An Edwardian roof comes in either a gable end or double hipped design and can be made from solar glass, self-cleaning glass or polycarbonate materials.  The uPVC double glazed conservatory (3.88m x 4.56m x 3.26m) from Screwfix costs £4,299.99, with other suppliers including Trade Price Conservatories and Wickes.  

Victorian Conservatory

The gothic-inspired Victorian conservatory is a period design characterised by its rounded bay front and apex roof with a ridge running along the top.  This conservatory, once the preserve of wealthy-individuals who used them to grow exotic plants, can today be customised using clear glass panels and a uPVC frame.  

The ‘Euramax Victorian’ solid roof conservatory (10ft x 11ft) from Wickes costs £7,300.00 with other suppliers including Fascias.com.

Lean-to Conservatory

This economically favourable style known as the ‘sunroom’ is popular with smaller homes as it can make the most out of limited space.  The roof tends to be less expensive and features a diagonal slant, allowing both rainwater and snow to slip off the top without requiring removal.  

A homeowner can utilise the space afforded by this conservatory style in a number of ways including playrooms, kitchen extensions and even dining areas.  In addition, these conservatories are ideal for properties with height restrictions. The ‘Lean-to’ DIY conservatory (4.6m x 2.3m) provided by DIY2GO can be purchased from just £3,149.00.  

Gable-End Conservatory

Although this style is more suited to older property, its rectangular design makes Gable-End a great choice for a modern home.  The vertical high roof maximises light intake and creates the feel of stately grandeur, while the whole design can be customised to individual taste.  

This style comes in a variety of materials including glass, polycarbonate and a solid roof tile system.  The Gable-End conservatory (10f x 11ft) from Trade Price Conservatories is available from £6,100.00.  

P-Shaped Conservatory

This style combines Victorian and Edwardian features, deriving its name from its physical design where one end is smaller than the other.  The P-Shaped conservatory provides a fantastic amount of space that can be separated into different uses. Materials such as energy efficient glass, a uPVC frame and a polycarbonate roof are common in its construction.  

The Edwardian P-Shaped conservatory (4m x 5m) is available at £7,000.00 from Trade Price Conservatories with other suppliers including Anglican Homes, Clearview and Leekes. 

Gull-wing Conservatory

This elegant conservatory boasts a hexagonal footprint and subtle angels that give the roof its distinctive wings, hence its name.  A perfect venue for entertaining, the Gull-wing can incorporate toughened safety glass panels, reinforced uPVC frames and a polycarbonate roof in its design.  

The full height glass Gull-wing conservatory supplied by Trade Price Conservatories costs £5,412.00.  

Bespoke Conservatory

A number of UK suppliers, including Britelite and Dunraven, provide a nationwide bespoke conservatory service featuring all styles. 

Full pricing details for each conservatory is available in ‘The Data’ section beneath.

Materials: Conservatory Roofs

When it comes to selecting the type and style of material for a conservatory, there are a fantastic number of options available to suit each and every taste – all a homeowner need do is choose. Let’s start with the conservatory roof.

The roof is an essential element in the construction process dictating how much light gets into the structure, the temperature inside and the overall durability of the conservatory. We have outlined the available options beneath.

Classic-tiled conservatory roof

There are a number of advantages of incorporating a classic-tiled roof into a conservatory including its ability to insulate effectively against outside noise.  In addition to this, condensation is rarely an issue and the well-insulated polycarbonate material ensures the homeowner can get the constant inside temperature they desire. 

Polycarbonate conservatory roof

This lightweight thermoplastic material can serve as an economical alternative to a double-glazed roof.  Even though thinner layers of polycarbonate can cause increased conservatory heating in summer and significant cooling during winter, it can be installed much faster than a double-glazed roof with minimal difference between both.  

Double-glazed conservatory roof

One of the biggest advantages of a double-glazed roof atop a conservatory is its dual ability to admit a large amount of sunlight and to reduce the amount of heat lost from the home.  This type of stylish glass assists with regulating the interior temperature of a home. In addition, the more recent availability of energy-efficient glass leads to a reduction in energy usage, affording homeowners significant savings when it comes to energy bills.

System tiled conservatory roof

This pre-assembled conservatory roof provides a highly customisable and lightweight option to homeowners which can be installed quickly and effectively.  A relatively new roofing option, it is closely related to the classic-tiled variety.

Hybrid conservatory roof

A thermally efficient solid roof for any conservatory, the Hybrid option can be installed within days and usually comes with a significant guarantee.  This all-weather proof roofing can add value to a home and some even say it has the ability to bring an existing conservatory back to life!  

In the event a homeowner selects glass, there are a number of common types of glass and decorative glazing which are used in installations in 2019 with varying price tags.  We have listed these options beneath.    

  • Laminated conservatory glass – up to 40% more expensive than standard glass
  • Toughened conservatory glass – up to 25% more expensive than standard glass
  • Noise control conservatory glass – up to 25% more expensive than standard glass
  • Low E conservatory glass – up to 25% more expensive than standard glass
  • Self-cleaning conservatory glass – up to 20% more expensive than standard glass
  • Standard conservatory glass

Materials: Conservatory Floors

After roofing has been decided upon, flooring is an important consideration when buying a conservatory, especially for those installing under-ground heating. The types of flooring listed beneath are currently available and include the average cost of material only.

Wooden Flooring

The installation of enduring wooden floors has increased in popularity amongst homeowners in recent times.  Even though solid wooden flooring does expand and contract during different weather conditions, it is maintenance friendly, increases the overall value of a home and is available in a variety of plank sizes, shades and types of wood.  It can be an expensive option with the average cost per square metre currently standing at £100. 

Vinyl Flooring

It usually comes in large, continuous, flexible sheets and is a great alternative for homeowners on a tight budget.  This fiberglass-based flooring is virtually water-tight, easy to install, resilient and can be custom-printed to almost any taste.  Vinyl usually retails for about £20-£30 per square metre. There are, however, a number of environmental concerns surrounding the manufacture and disposal processes related to it.       

Laminate Flooring

This type of flooring is a multi-layer synthetic product which has been fused together through a lamination process.  The manufacturing process is governed by strict European guidelines and usually costs less to purchase and install with material cost in the range of £10-£40 per square metre.  Laminate flooring is quite versatile and can be fitted to virtually any subfloor – even pre-existing vinyl floors. 

Carpet Flooring

Originating in the Middle East and at one point made out of wool, carpet flooring is a very popular choice especially for modern conservatories.  It is now made from fibers such as polypropylene, nylon and polyester and is the cheapest option of all costing about £5-£30 per square metre. A popular choice for homeowners who intend on using a conservatory extension as a playroom for young children.

Floor Tiles

Tiles are manufactured from a hard-wearing material such as stone, metal and even glass.  Tile flooring is very low maintenance, water resistant and the manufacturing processes used mean that tiles actually contribute positively to air quality in the home.  Tiles can be expensive but the average price per square metre is about £18-£40 in 2019. 

Materials: Conservatory Frames

Another important element is the framework used in construction, which when installed correctly enables the maximum amount of light enter the conservatory. This body is usually made from timber, steel, aluminium, uPVC or structural glass. We have outlined these popular choices in more detail beneath.

Timber Frame

This type of construction which was commonplace in the 19th century, has become a popular option when building conservatories across the UK in 2019.  A timber frame adds a stylish and attractive design to this useful and functional addition. The availability of different designs give a conservatory long-lasting appeal that adds real value to a property, in addition to being environmentally friendly. 

Steel Frame

A conservatory frame made from a steel based product has many obvious benefits such as high strength, sustainability and is generally more efficient than other materials.  The most popular frame in use in the UK, aluminium, is highly-durable, strong and incredibly lightweight making it suitable for conservatory construction. In addition to its strong environmental credentials, it can withstand salty air and harsh weather conditions, making it a great choice for homes with close proximity to the sea.

uPVC Frame

A low maintenance, rigid and durable type of plastic used extensively in the UK when manufacturing window frames, carrying out plumbing and drainage work.  A fire-resistant and recyclable material, it is rot-resistant and offers thermal comfort through its non-conductive nature. This is the most popular of all frames used in conservatory installations for over 30 years now and is usually supplied in classic white shading. 

Structural Glass

A relatively new departure in conservatory construction, using structural glass as a frame has many advantages for a homeowner including being easy to clean, resistant to the elements, long lasting and allows a considerable amount of light into the structure.  This new method of building is slowly increasing in popularity each year.  

FAQ’s

We have compiled a comprehensive list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for your convenience beneath.

What is a conservatory?

A conservatory is an extension of your home, which is typically made with a metal or wooden frame, and lots of glass windows to allow you to view your garden.  

Sometimes, these conservatories will be fully glazed to ensure that they trap in heat in the winter but are cool in the summer, and could even be used as a bedroom.

Does a conservatory require planning permission?

The answer is yes.  For conservatories you need planning permission; however, some conservatory companies such as Everset will submit your paperwork for you, and help you every step of the way.

What is the cost of the cheapest and most expensive conservatory?

The supplier Wickes sells a lean-to conservatory that only costs in the region of £2,199.99, which is less expensive than many other conservatories; however, it will still be a hefty investment to include installation.

More expensive conservatories could be as much as £30,000 or even more, depending on the size of your conservatory and which materials you decide to use.

Is a conservatory warm in winter?

Yes, a conservatory can be warm in the winter but only if an appropriate amount of insulation has been fitted in the roof or under-floor heating has been installed.  Erecting thermal curtains is a good temporary measure to retain heat.

Will a conservatory add value to my home?

Once again the answer is yes.  According to the leading homes solutions company HomeLogic who recently interviewed the presenter of hit television show, ‘Location, Location, Location’ Phil Spencer, a conservatory adds on between 7% – 15% onto the average cost of a property in the UK.  

This means that that based on the average cost of a UK home which now stands at £240,000, a homeowner potentially could see the value of their property rise by between £16,800 and £36,000.

How long does it take to build a conservatory?

In the UK a conservatory can typically take between 3 and 4 weeks to complete depending on the supplier selected.  This includes preparing the ground to be used, erecting frames and starting electrical work, installing windows and frames and finally completing the electrical work and adding the finishing touches to the structure and inside area.

Who is the best conservatory supplier?

The best conservatory supplier depends on many different factors, which might include the following: 

  • The price of the conservatory. 
  • Cost of the installation.
  • The quality of the structure.
  • How secure it is.
  • If there is double glazing.
  • How weatherproof it is.
  • The length of the installation.

Can a conservatory be converted into an orangery?

Yes, a conservatory can be converted into an orangery but a surveyor would be required to assess the property and judge the viability of converting the conservatory into an orangery.  There is a strong possibility that a new structure would be required to satisfy strict Building Regulations which exist across the UK.

A full list of top conservatory suppliers in the UK is available here.

Our Advice

Buying a conservatory can be an exciting and rewarding project for any homeowner. It is important that the supplier selected and materials used combine to produce a quality structure, providing years of enjoyment well into the future.
